Updated:GULF COAST —
One north Florida fisherman showed off a massive catch after reeling in an 800-pound shark.
Video shows fisherman Joey Polk pulling the 11-foot mako shark to shore.
Polk said he's been fishing since he was a child, but never expected such a big catch.
Polk with the help of his cousins caught the shark off the Gulf Coast, but the exact location of the catch is a secret.
"These are spots that have been handed down from our grandfathers, to our dads, to us. We like to keep it up a secret. Maybe one day I can pass it down to my kids," said Polk.
Polk did not let his catch go to waste.
He shared the meat at a big community barbecue, feeding a lot of people for free.
But, Polk warned that fishing for sharks is very dangerous, and people should only go out with someone who is experienced.
